Hi,
I just found this Instagram account of a Brazilian flute maker, who builds Boehm flutes in wood. Even the keys and key mechanism is in wood. That can't be a really working instrument? It has to be more art than an instrument for daily use?

What are your thoughts?

And the embouchure cuts and tone holes look a bit rough on some of these pictures?

Well there's video of him playing it, so apparently it works. I wouldn't want to play it though, I'd be afraid of getting splinters.

Some woodworkers just don't know when to quit. :)

Small pieces of wood like to move over time in response to the environment, and don't handle abrasion well. So I'm calling it more of an art project than an instrument you'd want to keep for a while.

If I had the money right know, I would love to get one of those. Not as an instrument but as an art / deco piece.
I think the Boehm flute is only 1000 $ und the piccolos are around 300$.
